MALAITA’s provincial capital Auki is slowly taking shape with a number infrastructure development underway.
This is surely going to facelift the provincial centre and once they are completed.
One of the latest developments is a newly built three story complex own by local business man and indigenous business advocator Charles Dausabea.
The complex is likely the second outstanding facility next to the TGA building also owned by a Malaita man Justin Fuo’o.
The latest developments have become a pride for the province where local Malaitan business people are now taking the lead to develop their own province.
The building to be named ‘Malaita shopping mall is expected to complete before the end of this year.
Mr Dausabea said his current development will become the second Aluminium class building in Auki.
He said the build once completed will accommodate bank offices, electronic shops, government offices, restaurant and learning institution.
He said the building will strictly only for services that will benefit indigenous people in the province.
“I will not accept Chinese business operators who wish to operate retail and wholesale goods like noodles, rice and taiyo to rent at this building.”
Mr Dausabea encourages local Malaita business operators to invest and help develop Malaita province to address urban migration.
“If Malaitans can develop other places in Solomon Islands, why not develop Malaita province a place where population is high.
“The more we build Malaita, the less migration we will experience in Honiara and other parts in Solomon islands,” Mr Dausabea said.
